Recommended Posts

I started taking minocycline again on March 20, i;ve noticed my acne has seem to have gotten worse? Is that supposed to happen? I thought only accutane made your skin worse before it got better. Thanks to anyone that responds/

yes, while mino almost got rid of painful pimples, it have me bumps all over my face. I'd rather have my painful acne back because accutane heals zits, not bumps that are not even acne.

yea you could be allergic, there's no evidence a far as i know that it would make it worse, before, during, after, or ever. it does put some strain on your body though, give it another week and see what happens, maybe you're allergic or your acne is resistant to the mino. (30% of all acne strains are resistant to one or more antibiotic)

yeah I was an allergic to the series where mino and erythromycin are. I'm so mad at it, and hate, it and against it, that I don't want anyone to take it. Sorry for caring.
